Pineapple and Passionfruit Milkshake

IMG_5015 Hey guys and gals! It’s been pretty darn warm outside, and one of my favorite treats to have when it’s hot outside is a milkshake. Not just any milkshake though. I’m not a huge fan of plain chocolate or vanilla shakes. I tend to like “different” milkshakes. In this post, I will be sharing a recipe for a super delicious Pineapple and Passionfruit Milkshake. This thick and creamy milk shake is super easy to make, and is packed with island flavor.

To make this milkshake, I used Ben & Jerry’s Frozen Greek Yogurt. They actually have ¬†flavor called Pineapple Passionfruit, and it has lots of pineapple chunks and passionfruit. I didn’t have to add any extra fruit to my shake. If you are not as lucky as I was, and can’t find this flavor, you can use this recipe as a substitute:

  • 1 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt
  • 1/4 cup crushed pineapple
  • 1/4 cup crushed passionfruit
  • 1/2 cup milk

I like to top my milkshake with whipped cream sprinkles, and cherries, but that’s completely optional. Follow the recipe down below, and be sure to watch my video demonstration for this video.
